It seems that the obvious answer to this question would be a resounding no. For many drivers, however, it still looks tempting to get inside a car with shattered glass if only to bring it to our auto glass repair center. There are several reasons why you should never operate a vehicle, however, with broken glass in Minnesota. We cover a few reasons below.
We Offer Mobile Service
You should never have to come to us when we can come to you. Only 1 Auto Glass offers fast, dependable mobile windshield repair. No matter where your vehicle is, we can go to you and replace the entire windshield in no time. We can come to your home, your place of business, or even if you are on vacation in Minneapolis. Our trained and certified technicians have the skill necessary to fix any car anywhere. Just call us, and we’ll be there.
It’s Against the Law in Minnesota
Although Minnesota law is unclear about minor chips or tiny cracks in the windshield, the law does state that you cannot operate a vehicle with a shattered or nonexistent windshield. According to regulations, anything that prohibits you from driving safely is considered an illegal distraction. Therefore, if you simply cannot wait to drive your car, then call us. We can either come to you or arrange to have your vehicle towed to our shop.
Shattered Glass is Dangerous
It’s a gamble to think that you can drive a few miles to our shop without getting cut by a cabin filled with glass on the floor and in the seats. Windshield glass is thick and extremely sharp. It can tear through the fabric and even jab through shoes. Since it’s transparent, you never know where it might be lodged or lying around. Don’t take the chance. Contact our auto glass replacement shop today and let us make arrangements to install a new windshield in your car before you drive it.
The Car is Not Driveable
If your windshield is still somewhat intact, there’s a good chance that your visibility is limited. If the windshield is completely smashed in, then there’s a hole in the frame. Either way, windshield damage that extensive renders your car undrivable and unsafe at best. You are putting yourself and other drivers at risk by attempting to drive it. Don’t take chances with your life or someone else’s life. Either call someone to get a ride or call us. We’ll fix your windshield on-site.
